What version are you running?
RBTools 0.7.2

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create changes in existing file
2. Commit file to git.
3. Execute rbt post

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected output is a new review board review is created and a diff is uploaded of the existing file and the new modified file.

Bellow is the debug log of what I see:

Your review request still exists, but the diff is not attached.

#1 jaimeenergysavvy

Was this ever resolved? I am running into the same issue today, albeit with mercurial.

#2 chipx86

This is generally not a bug but rather an issue either with the state of the repository or with the state of the branches being posted. The general cause is a diff being generated that ends up referencing parent revisions that are only in the local repository. The circumstances are going to be very different between Git and Mercurial. I'd recommend reaching out on reviewboard@googlegroups.com instead.

#3 pasmon

I ran into this issue recently, and somehow got it working by downgrading Review Board (server side) from 3.0.5 to 3.0.3 via pip.

#4 piyusg

For my case it was one where the gitlab repo was deleted and recreated,
Needed to change the "gitlab_project_id" in the scmtools repository configuration, it worked fine after that.
